"Eldebrock's debut album plays like Days Of The New and Stone Temple Pilots." – Music Review

I have been racking my brain trying to think who Eldebrock sounds like and the only thing I can come up with is the band’s music is Days Of The New meets Stone Temple Pilots meets Three Doors Down.

I don’t like comparing bands with other bands but for fans that haven’t heard of Eldebrock it gives them a good idea of what to expect. The difference though is the added guitar solo, similar to sounds of the late ‘80’s and early ‘90’s which showcase an amazing guitar player who made it a point to keep soloing in a band’s repertoire.

Nowadays, it seems as if guitar solos have made a comeback, unlike the late ‘90’s and early 2000 where, honestly, there weren’t really good guitar players around. Eldebrock combines three decades worth of sound on the band’s debut, self-titled album. There are heavy riffs, great guitar (see song “Tomorrow”), and duel voices on lyrics, something I’ve always been a fan of ever since Jim Morrison did it on “Riders On The Storm.”


There is great use of acoustic guitar throughout the album, specifically the songs “Room Of Stone,” “Venom Man” and “Ride The Waves.” The first single “Release Me” will get a lot of airplay (pun intended) as the song has been commissioned to appear on Thomas Cook Airlines on the Canadian Pop music channel throughout the Fall season.

Eldebrock’s new album is top to bottom a great rock album. There is no need for flair or showmanship as the band does exactly what it sets out to do – and that is to wow you with the music as each member plays his respective instrument perfectly.

I would love to see Eldebrock live because I know the West Canadian band would not disappoint. Look for the interview with the band soon. In the mean time, pick up the album. If you like Days of the New, Stone Temple Pilots and Three Doors Down, you’ll definitely like Eldebrock.

this band seriously concerns me for Canadian musicians. are they all just carbon copies of nickel back? it seems like every band from Canada (with the exception of Kitty) is just the same as the band before them. not trying to be a hater, just making a blatantly obvious observation.
